The Quran

The Holy Quran (القرآن‎, “the recitation”; Qur’an or Koran) is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from God (Allah).The Quran is the most sacred text, as it is believed to be the literal word of God (Allah) as revealed to Muhammad. The Holy Quran is divided into chapters (سورة‎ sūrah, plural سور suwar), which are subdivided into verses (آية‎ āyāh, plural آيات āyāt).

The Qur’an is the Divine Word or Speech sent down to humanity, the best pattern of creation that is uniquely qualified to receive it.

In accordance with humanity‘s worth and value, and considering the human heart, spirit, mind, and physical being, the Qur’an descended from the Highest of the High. Containing the most perfect messages, it is a collection of Divine Laws.
